I found these lovely posters via dazeychic. I think they're very inspiring, and would love to have one in my home. It's a nice reminder to see at the beginning of the day: be happy, laugh, don't worry so much. Because life is beautiful if you will only notice it.
A lot of creative people have experienced being ridiculed and misunderstood at least once in their lives because of who they are. This is because creativity is often pushed aside, labeled insignificant and impractical, and have ranked a little lower than other priorities, like getting a job, having a family, etc. To pursue a creative life is to know that a lot of forces are against you, so you have to be strong and very passionate about what you do.
Have you ever felt ridiculed because of your interests and activities? How did you respond to such instances?
Here's a video of Sir Ken Robinson talking about schools and creativity. It's very inspiring, and has reinforced a lot of my self-belief. I hope it will change your life, too:

Did you ever believe in something so bad that you were willing to do anything because of it? Have you ever felt so strongly about something that you were willing to go to great lengths just to protect it? A lot of our heroes have felt the same way one time or another, and they didn't stop believing until their death.
So go out today and live. Work, study, play, love. But above all else, do not think that the buck stops when you fail. If you continue to push forward, you'll find that it's just the beginning towards a new success that you might not even think is possible

Gandhi is a very prominent political figure in India. He inspired change among people by standing up against authority. By resisting tyranny through civil disobedience rooted in nonviolence, he was able to inspire radical change. His views about freedom, peace and independence continues to be celebrated by the world.
Have you encountered a situation that made you feel trapped and put down? What did you do to get out of it?
What are instances in your life where you stood up for your beliefs?
